New This very large 40" x 30" commissioned painting is slowly taking shape :)Starting the largest commissioned work I have done yet... it is very intimidating at first.

Some script words in the commissioned piece... so much fun.
My gym has motivational sayings painted on the walls... this one is my favorite :)
